Todays cracker was inspired by my second spice drawer, the one that holds the “big guns”. The big guns are those spices that have a specific calling. You know the oddball stuff. :) I have always known the importance of keeping your spices current and fresh. One really ought to replace them every 6 months, but do we? I don’t. But, I came across two spices that had lost their smell and their flavor! So this got me thinking, that I really needed to go through and start using them up.
That is how I landed on the idea of using vegetable bouillon cubes in a recipe. I have provided a link below to the exact ones that I used if you are interested. They are organic. If you don’t have them on hand and don’t want to buy them, you can play around with a spice mix to replace them. I looked up the ingredients in these and it is as follows; Sea Salt, Yeast Extract, Organic Non Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Organic Garlic, Organic Basil, Organic Parsley, Organic Tumeric, Organic Lovage, Organic Celery, Organic Dill. I am not sure exactly what measurements of each to use, so you will have to add a little of “this and that” to find the right balance for your palette.
I was very pleased how these turned out. I don’t find them strong in any particular flavor which makes them a great “base” cracker. They that will be able to handle many different types of spreads and raw cheeses.
